Bible Studies/Looking for a book authored by you


Dear Brother Thurman
I am trying to get Sabbath School investment started up in our church and have been looking for your book I've seen miracles. Growing up in the church as a child I remember SS investment as an exciting activity that build my faith in God. I would like to get this started in my church again and I have found lots of how to information but would like the stories to inspire our church and give them ideas of some of the things that people have done in the past. Can you please tell me how to get your book.

Dear Denise, I put the book along with a complete set of 5 books of the Gate series in the mail this afternoon. I don't know how long it will take, but you'll probably get them in a week.

My e-mail is

Let me know if I can be of further help.
